OF PENN YAN FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH
224 Main StreetJanuary 22, 2012
10:00 AM Yan, New York
We, as God's people, will use our gifts and talents to seek out and bring people to Christ,
by maturing in our faith, by deepening our fellowship,
and by caring for people for the honor and glory of God.
Prelude – Chimes
*Song of Praise “Change My Heart O God” PB no. 25
Welcome & Announcements
*Call to Worship
Pastor: Since the beginning of time, it became clear that humans would sin.
People: Because of our broken relationship with God, God provided ways for us to reconnect with Him through sacrifice.
Pastor: Finally, in Christ there was one perfect sacrifice for all sin.
People: This was a sure sign of God's perfect love for us.
Pastor: Through Christ we are freed from sin! We are forgiven!
People: Our sacrifice is a humble and contrite heart. We are grateful for the forgiveness that God offers us through His Son, Jesus Christ! It is a free gift when we ask for it.
*Hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” No. 260
Old Testament Reading Exodus 29:14, 33 OT pg. 97,98
Leviticus 4:35; 14:31 OT pg. 115, 127
God of Mercy, forgive us our sins. We have sought after our own will instead of Your will. Instead of believing Your words, we have replaced sober mindedness and clarity by welcoming the fog of deception into our lives. We have sought pleasure and we have desired power. We have been quick to pass responsibility for our actions to others. We have left undone good works which we know to do, hoping that someone else would do them. Release us from the bondage of sin and set our hearts, our hands, and our feet on a new path. Amen.
Something for the Child In All of Us
Pastoral Prayer & Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
*Doxology Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
*Hymn “God of Compassion, in Mercy Befriend Us” No. 261
New Testament Reading Hebrews 9:11-28 NT pg. 302
Sermon “The Basics: Words Pastors Use – Sacrifice & Forgiveness”
Rev. Linda Foody
